Seitz 6×17 Digital: What Is This Monster?

Seitz 6x17 Digital

It takes pictures, off course. And yes, it is a digital camera. It is also very big, almost half a meter wide, and you hold it like so. It is the Seitz 6 x 17 Digital panorama camera.

It shoots at 160 megapixels (!) to make high-resolution 6 x 17-cm native images. Its light sensitivity range is ISO 500 to 10,000 with 300MB read-out speed and a shutter speed of 1/20,000th of a second.

Price: $36,266 for the “mobile version” and $33,715 for the “studio version”. This megalith of a camera will be on show at the Photokina expo next week in Cologne, Germany.
